Welly Tuesday!


Due to popular demand and because of the success of Welly Wednesday, our morning pre-school group, we are now offering an extra afternoon session on Tuesdays.

Welly Wednesday is a pre-school group which takes place in the rich and wonderful woodland at the Botanic Garden on Wednesday mornings (during term time between 11am-12pm)

Children between the ages of 1 and 4 come with their carer, and often siblings to join in with the range of activities on offer. They learn about the natural world, its wildlife and the impact of the changing seasons. The children love spending time in the woods taking part activities such as treasure hunts, bug hunts, pond dipping, natural obstacle courses, crafts and playing in the mud kitchen.

We always start the session with a welcoming bring-and-share snack time, and end the session with a story and a singalong.

The next Welly Tuesday is on 19th February from 1pm -2pm. All welcome. Ask at Gatehouse for directions.

I hope you can join me.
